Hang With Friends

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

Such Lyrics!

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

Carl! Good to see you're back! Happy to hear that you're on the mend!

Hello, everyone. I'm going to keep this short because I'm writing on my smartphone, which is very slow and tedious. I'm doing well. I see many of you have inquired about my well-being. Thanks for your concerns.
I have had limited and spotty internet. My heart surgery went very well but have spent the last five weeks in two different physical rehabilitation facilities. I'm healing nicely but have had some pluricy in my chest, which is fluid around the lungs. It is excruciating painful.
I'm being released this Wednesday and will stay once again with my parents while I continue to regain my strength.
P.S. Joan, sorry to read about your incident falling. I'm glad to hear your recovering and being well taken care of by your family.

Glad to hear you're on the mend Joan.

It's difficult to know where to start when describing a two week trip. Generalizations are too broad, while detailing can be boring. Photos are meaningless without context. Impressions are personal. I did write about food in the "food" group. My favorite city was Linz. Rothenburg (Germ) is a walled city west of Nuremburg (which we quickly visited). The walls are basically the same as it was 48 years ago when I hitchhiked through Europe, but the town itself has become a touristy attraction, much to my dismay. So many cities cater to the cruise and bus visitors.

I could say so much more, but......

Welcome back, Randall. I'd like to hear more.

Glad to hear of your progress, Joan.

Comment by Plinius on April 25, 2015 at 2:13am

I'm glad you're on the mend, Joan, but I'm still puzzling on the ´fantastic group of words´ - I don't know what you meant.

My cane keeps me balanced and is rather a good dancing partner! Healing progressing very nicely. I am now able to empty the dishwasher and refill it. Not much of a contribution to family functioning but far better than needing help with everything. We took up the hall rugs and poor Dominic, the black lab, has a terrible time getting traction. He doesn't like my cane. He was adopted from the animal shelter as an adult and we suspect he was abused.

Carl, we don't hear from you even as we think of you hoping you have the opportunity for a healthy and happy future. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 25, 2015 at 1:45am

Randy, welcome home! What a wonderful trip you had! I hope you will share more details ... describe some menus that you really enjoyed, or some interesting event. I love reading such detail.
